California-based eSignal, a division of Interactive Data Corporation, has upgraded its real-time quote service and charting software application to include new European, Asian and Pacific Rim exchange information and analytical tools.
The new release - eSignal 7.4 - now includes both real-time and delayed data from exchanges in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Africa. European coverage has also been extended to include exchanges in Italy and Greece.
Users will also have access to historical market information, making it possible to identify trends and back test trading strategies.
In addition, the platform now enables users to create customised trading tickets with buttons containing their most often-used order sizes and other pre-set information. The trading ticket can be attached to any window - such as a quote window or a market depth window - so users have the trading ticket at hand whenever they place a trade.
Also, a new page formatting method allows users to automatically flip from page to page to view multiple charts, and a multiple-symbol linking feature enables users to link sets of selected windows to one another so that when a symbol changes in one window, it automatically changes all linked windows.
Furthermore, Cbot's Market Profile is now available in the eSignal advanced charting window.
